Jet2.com is ready for their first flights from new Glasgow base with Cyprus proving popular
The 31st March 2011 will see the first flights from Jet2.com take off with Cyprus likely to be one of the most popular destinations.
Paphos in Cyprus is one of seven destinations to be offered from Glasgow. The choice of destinations was designed to reflect the interests and trends in the market with year round favourites like Spain, France and Cyprus joined by hotspots like Turkey and the Algarve.
A Luxury Destination
Cyprus’ position towards the African continent has long made it a popular destination for luxury holidays in the sun. The complement of ancient architecture and modern complexes ensures that visitors to the island enjoy the best of both worlds.
The island also holds a certain mysticism, no doubt inspired by the mythology that clings to the country. This can be credited to the rather fragmented past of Cyprus with 35% of the country still under Turkish rule.
“The people of Glasgow love Spain and Cyprus”
It might also be the allure of the beaches that attracts many tourists to return to Cyprus each year. Whatever the reason, it is striking a chord with the people of Glasgow. Jet2.com managing director, Ian Doubtfire, has confirmed this popularity, along with Spain. He said:
“The people of Glasgow love Spain and Cyprus and the customer feedback is very positive. We will offer people a great choice of holiday destinations, low fares, a generous 22kg baggage allowance, a loyalty scheme, allocated seating on all flights and convenient flight times.”
Officials at Glasgow Airport have also been encouraged by the initial interest in flights from Jet2.com. Amanda McMillan, the Airport boss, said:
“I’ve been very encouraged by the strong uptake on flights to the seven destinations on offer.”
Glasgow will be the eighth base that Jet2.com fly from and they offer cheap flights to Cyprus to both Paphos and Larnaca; giving customers access to the whole island.
Jet2.com has a number of cheap flights to Cyprus from Glasgow available. Prices start from £69.99 one way, including taxes.
